With fashion slowly emerging from last year's cocoon, most people are split into two camps: those who want to dress all the way up and those who are still clinging to comfort. Fall's footwear bridges that gap with a little something for everyone. Sky-high heels? Here you go. Boots? But of course. We rounded up the styles we're most excited about—keep scrolling to find your favorites.
1. Lug-Sole Boots
This trend is all about proportion—namely, an abbreviated height and an aggro sole. These stylish stompers aren't shy about their impact. The result? An effortless confidence that's perfect for pairing with your daintiest dress.
Platforms and lug soles give this preppy staple a lift for fall. But don't worry—they don't lose any of the versatility or comfort that make them a perfect work-to-weekend shoe.
3. Knee-High Boots
Knee-high boots are big this season, especially the styles that don't play it safe. Look for rich textures, bold colors and strong heel silhouettes. The height works with most dresses, but we love the layered effect you get when you wear them with a midi skirt.
Always a favorite of creatives and comfort-lovers, clogs have toed their way to top-trend status this season. With throwback looks, earthy colors and cozy combos of wood, cork and shearling, they bring a relaxed boho vibe to everything from denim to dresses.
5. Statement Heels
Heels are an easy way to elevate your special-occasion look, and fall's sexy standouts make a strong case for keeping up with your pedicure. Strap details steal the show, adding unexpected texture with sculptural ruching, bold braids and delicate strands that wrap around the ankle.
